In 1922 Mordell conjectured that every algebraic curve of genus ≥2 has at most finitely many rational points. This conjecture was proved by Faltings in 1983. In 1991 Vojta gave a completely different proof, based on diophantine approximation. Vojta's proof was then simplified by Bombieri. In the textbook under review, the authors work towards Bombieri's proof, giving the reader the necessary background. Unlike several other textbooks in this field, the prerequisites are quite modest, so the book is very useful for instance for a graduate course on diophantine geometry. Each chapter goes along with many exercises. (Zentralblatt)
